Congratulations are in order for Karren May who with herculean effort and dedication has managed to mount a major exhibition on behalf of J P Morgan Asset management.
The exhibition covers the 80 years of the Isle of Wright race from some pioneering yacht photography captured with specially made large format plate glass cameras all the way to digital capture.
Karren asked me to help with “digital restoration” of a variety of images from aged plate glass to more modern images, my brief was to overcome any artefacts and present the images at their best.
It was important that the retouching was sensitive to the documentary requirements and ensure that only distracting artefacts were removed and to respect the underlying image. Careful tonal and colour adjustments were made to bring out the true image from the raw stock.
I was pleased to complete the work on time and within budget.

Karren kept a diary of her work and its an interesting read here:
Karren owned and ran the Bluegreen marine stock photography agency, since selling the agency she has been helping a variety of organizations to present their work through a variety of projects from publications to exhibitions. I am happy to introduce Karren as part of a team of creative professionals who can handle a wide variety of image based tasks and projects.
